3 Classic Spots To Bring In The Festivities In Delhi

Oh, how I love the current festive vibe around. Diwali is just a week away, markets are all decked up with lights, diyas and rangoli and we are on a shopping spree for new clothes, new home décor and so much more. What I’m always very excited about around Diwali is the food- the extravagant way how Indians celebrate festivals, food is an indispensable part of it. And Diwali being one of the biggest festivals of India gives us immense variety to nosh upon. This year the festival of lights will be celebrated on 4th November, 2021 and I’m all excited about what’s on the menu of the next dinner party.  

But let’s be honest, planning a party or even deciding what to prepare on festivities could be a daunting task. But who said you have to do it all at home? With multiple amazing restaurants, delivery places and takeaways in town offering festive offers on scrumptious delicacies, one need not worry about it at all. But there are some places that never gets old, in fact keep getting better. Especially around festivals. I remember having biryani from the popular Behrouz Biryani once at a an office Diwali party. Besides the aromatic flavour and perfect blend of spices, what impressed me was the budget-friendly priced and combos it offered. Same is the case with McDonalds. I agree it is as old as I can remember my childhood, but can the classic aloo tikki or chicken McGrill get old? I say, never. So I've got a roundup of three classic places you can go dine-at or order from to celebrate the festivities in all its spirits without wondering much about prepping at home.  

1. Faasos

The ultimate destination for drool-worthy wraps and rolls, Faasos is one of the hotspots for scrumptious, most fulfilling, juicy wraps. Beyond that one can choose from one-pot meals such as rice bowls along with snacks and appetisers like meatballs, falafel nuggets and more.

2. Mcdonalds

A favourite of many people when it comes to burgers, Mcdonalds has been a part of many special moments of our lives since childhood. Remember those birthday party in McDonalds with happy meals and toys? Well, Mcdonalds haven’t changed much, especially when it comes to special occasions and festivals. If you love their burgers and wraps as much as I do, Mcdonalds love you too. And so, it has offers and deals for each one of you. Whether you are a McVeggie lover or a McAloo Tikki loyalist, going in a group or solo, there is a good chance you’ll find an offer that best suits you. You can simply download their app for exclusive offers – no matter you are dining-in, ordering-in or takeaway. Imagine getting a free soft serve or a free drink or a whole value meal on select orders. Isn’t that exciting?

3. Behrouz Biryani

Who minds Biryani ever on a festive occasion? I know I can never say no to it. And if you too are a fan if it, Behrouz is one of the best options to go for. With its keema kefta biryani or Hyderabadi Dum biryani having the best of aromatic flavours and spices, I don’t think I can resist ordering one tonight for dinner.

Happy Diwali!
